SERIO-COMIC WAR MAP FRO THE YEAR 1877 BY F. W. ROSE

An interesting colour lithograph caricature map which shows the political situation in Europe in 1877. Published by G. W. Bacon & Co. This map became known as the ‘Octopus’ map with its striking feature of Russia being represented by a large brown octopus. One tentacle wounded in the Crimean War is curled up but the others stretch out grasping at the most accessible parts of Europe. Bulgaria is shown as a skull in reference to the terrible Turkish massacre of the Bulgarians in Batak. Italy is shown as a girl on roller-skates playing with a puppet of the Pope Other countries are portrayed as caricatured men and women showing their national characteristics. All together certainly a most curious map. 22 x 16 inches. Trimmed on the top and bottom and small side margins. Split down the centre of the map and as you will see from the verso photo this map was once kept by its owner pasted into the back of a book.
